I have a confession to make…
I have probably had fudge once or twice in my life, and I was never a big fan of it. I found it overly sweet and it felt like I was eating sugar. Until now! If you’re a regular reader of mine, well you know how much I adore nutella, and I’ll try all sort of recipes with nutella, including fudge. But I wanted to take this fudge to a new level and added my own spin on it by adding my favorite kind of nuts, pistachios.
So let me tell you, the combination of sweet from the nutella and the condensed milk and the saltiness from the sea salt and the pistachios, well it truly is a marriage made in heaven. This nutella fudge does not taste like you’re eating sugar, well simply because there is no sugar in it, so it’s nice and smooth.
To my surprise, this fudge was unbelievably simple to make, it literally took me 5 minutes to make it. You probably spend more time prepping the baking pan than you do making the fudge. So in a few minutes, you can make yourself this incredible dessert. I think it’s ideal for a party, because you can cut it in small bite size pieces and people will just love you, thinking you spent hours on this creation.
The reason I made this fudge is my husband, he has such a sweet tooth for chocolate, he’s unbelievable. He kept telling me of this chocolate they make in Romania which they call “home chocolate” and how it’s not as hard as real chocolate but softer and sweeter. So I was wondering what the heck he was talking about and I decided to google it, yes google is my friend, and I found a recipe and I was like, hey that’s just fudge. And here I thought it was something special, however I learned something new, I learned that they make fudge in Romania, did not know that, I thought it was a Western thing. See you do learn something every day.
And that is the story of how I came to make this delicious fudge. I really do hope you give it a try, it is so good, now you can’t have to much of it because even though it has no sugar, it’s still sweet from the nutella and condensed milk, but having a small piece will take care of that sweet tooth. I swear, it’s true!
You’ll thank me, you’ll see.
